Overview

This course has been designed to reflect the wide applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics. You will learn to understand, write and apply CFD methods across a wide broad range of fields, from aerospace, turbomachinery, multi-phase flow and heat transfer, to microflows, environmental flows and fluid-structure interaction problems. Tailor your course by choosing from a range of specialist modules covering application-specific methods and techniques.

The MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics provides a solid background so that you will be able to apply CFD methods as a tool for design, analysis and engineering applications. With a strong emphasis on understanding and application of the underlying methods, enthusiastic students will be able to write their own CFD codes during the course.

Sharing some modules with the MSc in Aerospace Dynamics gives you the opportunity to interact with students from other disciplines. In recent years, our students have been had the opportunity for work-based placements at the Aircraft Research Association (ARA), European Space Agency (ESA), Ricardo and DAF Trucks.

Programme structure

The taught modules are delivered from October to April via a combination of structured lectures, and computer based labs.

The core part of the course consists of modules which are considered to represent the necessary foundation subject material. The course is designed to reflect the broad range of CFD applications by providing a range of optional modules to address specific application areas.

Career opportunities

Strategic industrial links ensure that the course meets the needs of the organisations competing within the computational sector therefore making Cranfield graduates some of the most desirable in the world for companies to recruit. An increasing demand for CFD specialists with in depth technical knowledge and practical skills within a wide range of sectors has seen our graduates employed by leading companies including: – Alstom – BAE Systems – Cummins Turbo Technology – BHRESTEC – Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd – NUMECAONERA – Rio Tinto – Rolls-Royce plc – Siemens.

Roughly one third of graduates go on to register for PhD degrees, many on the basis of their MSc individual research project. Thesis topics are often supplied by individual companies on in-company problems with a view to employment after graduation – an approach that is being actively encouraged by a growing number of industries.
